Most hunters have a selection of shotguns, each for a specific season. But what about one-shotgun hunters that still want a slug gun? Are they doomed? Not today. Here are a few accessories that can help you convert your shotgun to a slug gun.
The Caldwell Lead Sled takes the brunt of the recoil, which is handy when shooting slugs from the bench.
These targets were shot from the same shotgun and same brand of ammo; on the right 2 ¾-inch slugs, on the left 3-inch slugs.
Here is just a small sampling of slugs. Finding the right combination is the key to good accuracy.
ATI’s Akita adjustable stock raises the eye to the same plane as the scope or sights.
If you are looking for a great trigger for your 870 look no further than the Timney 870 Trigger Fix.
Every slug gun deserves sights. These clamp onto a vent rib to make any shotgun a slug gun.
